Budhaditya Chattopadhyay: Documents a Landscape in Metamorphoses

img  Tobias

To Budhaditya Chattopadhyay, sound is ideally suited for making these processes transparent. The richly detailed sonic exuberance has made way for a static and oppressive industrial noisescape. By presenting his recordings in their pure original state, Chattopadhyay emphasizes their political aspect, while leaving questions of exact interpretation to the listener.
Despite its analytical nature, “Landscape in Metamorphoses” also deals with feelings of helplessness at loosing one’s most cherished memories – and is therefore ultimately a deeply personal work: “From a motivation of return and revisit, being spent my childhood here, I realized while going through the recording experience, the topography of my childhood already disappeared into nostalgia. Not merely a sonic representation of a transfigured landscape, this work is also a lamentation over my own personal loss of memory-associations.”
